CISS 310    Network Security Fundamentals    3 Units

Prerequisite: None
Advisory: CISN 140 or CISN 300 or CISN 304 with a grade of "C" or better.
Course Transferable to CSU
Hours: 45 hours LEC ; 27 hours LAB
Description: Organizations today are linking their information systems across enterprise-wide networks and Virtual Private Networks, as well as increasing their exposure to the Internet. Each connection magnifies the vulnerability to unauthorized access. This course provides the fundamental knowledge needed to analyze risks to the system and implement a workable security policy that protects information assets from potential intrusion, damage or theft. Students will learn which countermeasures to deploy to thwart potential attacks. This course will also prepare students for CompTIA's Security+ Exam.

CISS 320    Implementing Network Security and Counter Measures    3 Units

Prerequisite: CISS 310 with a grade of "C" or better.
Course Transferable to CSU
Hours: 45 hours LEC ; 27 hours LAB
Description: With the growing reliance on e-commerce, network-based services and the Internet, organizations are faced with an ever-increasing responsibility to protect their systems from attack. Internet Detection Systems (IDS) are the latest and most powerful tools for identifying and responding to network- and host-based intrusions. Students will research network and operating system exploits, and deploy the proper countermeasures. Virtual Private Networks (VPN) are countermeasures which provide a significant cost savings by allowing remote users and multiple sites to securely communicate across a public network. A thorough understanding of the many standards and technologies available is essential for a successful VPN implementation. In this course, students will gain the knowledge required to evaluate, implement and manage secure remote-access technologies.
